Future Planning – Ask Yourself

Could I cope on my own if my partner dies next week?

Could my partner cope if I died?

Am I paying too much tax?

When will I be financially independent?

(Will I ever be? or How can I be?)

Can I retire before 65?

These are all questions we are afraid to ask because we won’t like the answer. You could simply never answer them and just see what happens or you could ask for some help. Not all questions can be answered satisfactorily but if I had a pound for every person I have heard say ‘I wish someone had told me that 10/20/30 years ago’…………….

There are dozens of other questions you could ask as well if you knew what they were. Sorting out how the answers fit into your life is a full time job (I know because it my full time job).
